TV's Question Time will be broadcast from Heathrow Terminal 2 at the end of this month.

BBC One's political debate show will showcase the newly-rebuilt airport terminal on 29 May, ahead of its official opening.

"The new Heathrow Terminal 2 will be a spectacular setting for Question Time," said programme editor Nicolai Gentchev.

"We are looking forward to going to a huge workplace through which millions of people will travel."

The show, hosted by David Dimbleby, has recently been broadcast from historic venues including St Paul's Cathedral and Westminster Hall in Parliament.

"Whether we are in Wormwood Scrubs prison, Winchester Cathedral, or in theatres, schools or community halls, we will continue to take Question Time and its audience to diverse places that reflect the range of debate on the programme," said Mr Gentchev.

The show is broadcast every Thursday on BBC One and BBC Radio 5 Live and features guests from the worlds of politics and the media responding to questions posed by members of the public.

The new Terminal 2, designed by Spanish architect Luis Vidal, has taken five years to complete. At its centre stands British artist Richard Wilson's massive aluminium sculpture, Slipstream, which was unveiled last month.
